This article is about the Elven port in Lindon. For the port of Minas Tirith, see Harlond (Gondor).

Harlond was a haven of the Elves on the southern shores of the Gulf of Lhûn. It is a small inlet about 150 miles west of Mithlond built on the side of Harlindon[1] and is thus considered the southern part of the Grey Havens.[2]

Etymology

The Elvish name Harlond likely means "south haven".[source?]
